I never once claimed to have any such superiority over you

Even your punctuation is condescending.

Truth and morality are orthogonal dimensions, just as socialism and fascism are orthogonal political ideas.

where on earth can you find an example of non-fiat money that is in common use and has an agreed-upon value?

While 'value' is an ebb-and-flow sort of thing, precious metals remain relatively more stable than the current regime of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, supporting the U.S. exporting its inflation abroad.
That is one issue where the country has a substantial basis to be ashamed.

I ask you third-grade level questions, to see if you have even third-grade level comprehension, and you generally show that you do not.

Oh Progressive moral superior! I throw myself at your feet and beg forgiveness for having the temerity to think that I could gainsay you! Wait: you're daft. Forget that noise.
